This Sunday Erica and I will be talking about sex at our church. While at a coffee shop this morning studying, I received a call from Pastor Randy Phillips. After I told him this weeks topic, he said, “what?!”. I asked him if he had any “advice”.
He said he had recently asked God to remove the sex drive from the world for 5 years. Just think of the positive things that would bring to the world. All these things would not exist for five years:
* sex slavery/ trafficking
*sexually transmitted diseases
*broken marriages from affairs
*disobedience to God’s word (sin)
On the positive side, we would loose:
* consummation of marriage
* procreation of more kids
* intimacy between spouses
*10-15 minutes of physical pleasure
Randy went on to say the God was “quiet” after this request and it wasn’t answered “yes”.
So, we must live in this balance between the risks and rewards. We must live in the midst of people that have completely different values. We must live in the midst of thousands of media messages that are opposed to Biblical teaching…
There’s a lot to talk about Sunday…
